Hello new_986,

The optical tutorial, and the Optic package in Abinit, is based on the work of S. Sharma and C. Ambrosch-Draxl in an article titled "Second-Harmonic Optical Response from First Principles". The theory presented in this article uses DFPT to calculate the optical susceptibilities to first and second-order.
